How do I determine avg concurrent connections to IIS.?

I am trying to find out if there is a way to determine what the avg # of concurrent connections to a IIS 6 web server is.  I have several sites loaded to the physical system.  But my boss wants to get the metrics for a possible outsource.

His request is what is the avg # of concurrent connections to our IIS system?
